HORSHAM, Pa., May 1, 2020 – The Janssen Pharmaceutical Companies of Johnson & Johnson announced today the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved DARZALEX FASPRO(daratumumab and hyaluronidase-fihj), a new subcutaneous formulation of daratumumab. DARZALEX FASPRO™ is approved in four regimens across five indications in multiple myeloma patients, including newly diagnosed, transplant-ineligible patients as well as relapsed or refractory patients. As a fixed-dose formulation, DARZALEX FASPRO™ can be administered over approximately three to five minutes, significantly less time than DARZALEX®, which is given intravenously over hours. In the Phase 3 COLUMBA study supporting the approval, DARZALEX FASPRO™ demonstrated a consistent overall response rate (ORR) and pharmacokinetics and a similar safety profile compared with intravenous DARZALEX® in patients with relapsed or refractory multiple myeloma. In addition, there was a nearly two-thirds reduction in systemic administration-related reactions (ARRs) for DARZALEX FASPRO™ compared to intravenous DARZALEX® (13 percent vs. 34 percent, respectively).
